Providing students with an opportunity to engage in entrepreneurial activities is a learning outcome in many programs. This session will show how a course in the Health, Wellness & Fitness Program at Mohawk College fostered while inspiring students to engage with the content. Key elements of the course include: INdustry partnerships, INterdisciplinary collaborations and the opportunity for students to engage in "real world" applications of entrepreneurship/INtrapreneurship. Using these key elements, students worked towards the development of a real or hypothetical company/product.
The business plan, which utilized online technology provided by an industry partner, culminated in an opportunity for some to pitch Dragon's Den style to a panel of industry experts at an event that showcased the business concepts.

This session will describe how the course is designed, how it engaged students, incorporated authentic opportunities and how it encouraged collaboration from start to finish. Participants will have the opportunity to interact in a brainstorming session on how they might apply these concepts to their own program and courses.
